Writing Southern Italy Before the Renaissance : Trecento Historians of the Mezzogiorno Hardback
Part of the Routledge Studies in Renaissance and Early Modern Worlds of Knowledge series
This volume traces the work of trecento historians of the Mezzogiorno, analyzing it through current methodological and theoretical frameworks.
Questioning the current consensus, the book examines how the South as a cultural "other" began evolving over the fourteenth century, and reconsiders the nineteenth-century "Southern Question" concerning the Mezzogiorno's history, culture and people and its lingering negative image in Europe and America.
It also focuses on specific histories, authors and historiographical issues, and reviews how new understandings of the Mediterranean have begun to alter our perceptions of the South in a new global context and as the basis for new historical research.
